When you go up to a random car and start shooting at it, notice that there are no cracks in the windshield or bullet holes in the doors or hood. Its as if the entire car were bullet proof including the tires. See more »

Quotes

[the main character recieves his first job from Kenji]
Kenji Kasen: My sister speaks highly of you, though I am yet to be convinced that a gaijin can offer anything but disappointment. Perhaps you can help deal with a situation that has me at a disadvantage. Of course failure has its own disgrace. A Yakuza Kanbu is in custody awaiting transfer for trial. He is a valued member of the family. Break him out of custody and get him to the dojo at Bedford Point.

Brilliant; One of the biggest improvements in a video games series
10 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

Great cops and robbers video game about a criminal who is left for dead. When he is lucky and gets a jail break, he returns to Liberty City, USA to work for different crime rings, and to take revenge on the people who betrayed them.

A huge improvement over Grand Theft Auto and GTA 2, Grand Theft Auto III is one of the best Action/Crime games in recent history. There are good voice-overs and a wonderful story. Games don't usually get any better than this. Also play Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

5 out of 5.
